Another product of Richard "Aphex Twin" James'
Rephlex stable, Chris Jeffs'
releases as Cylob
have numbered among the Cornwall-based imprint's most celebrated recent releases. Not nearly as prolific as his friends and sometime-labelmates James
and Mike Paradinas
has nonetheless amassed an impressive catalog of releases in a relatively short period of time. Although he only began experimenting with electronics in 1991, within five years Jeffs
released three EPs and three full-lengths -- including the cheeky DJ double-pack Loops and Breaks
) and the sparse ambient of Empathy Box
) -- in addition to remixes for Aphex Twin
, Bochum Welt
, and Immersion
. Although focusing more recently on a refined brand of ambient breakbeat and techno, Jeffs'
stylistic palette includes crunchy, industrial-leaning techno, beatless ambient, and new-school electro-funk. [See Also: Kinesthesia
